The Karuppu kudirai is back and yes, had this alpa thrill of being one of the first to attack the shops and fill my bag with everything and anything from the Kala Ghoda bazaar.
A regular at almost all craft bazaars in Mumbai - Nirmala from Kottans (pic). "Namma oorkaaraala naamadan encourage pannanum" - M-i-l's golden words and yours truly added two small pouches to the shopping cart.
Plus Brass ganapatis, Concern India's pen holders, pouches plus bags plus Orissa handicrafts plus...
The Shopping will todarum tomorrow....this time with one number man's big fat wallet which will (hopefully) have more money than the chillarai I had carried today.
